Bruno Chenu provides an extraordinary record of the origin and history of Negro spirituals and offers exceptional historical and sociological insights into their meaning. Section One focuses on the origin of the spiritual by examining the odyssey of the North American slave trade from the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries. Section Two features an exhaustive study of the various themes found within the spirituals, which number today at over 6,000.
